Sliders with Crispy Onion Rings

Buffalo Sliders with Crispy Onion Rings

You can make these sliders with buffalo meat which will totally satisfy your craving for red meat but is lower in fat than beef. 

You can also make them with lean beef or even turkey. These sliders are perfect for a crowd or just a light lunch or dinner. Don't you just love how cute they are?

If you can't find slider buns, make your own Burger Buns and make them smaller or use mini pitas. If you're up to the task, go ahead and make your own Onion Rings
